"Quote of the Week"

"As I show you these cards, I want you to think of a card and remember the number at which it lies. Now take the deck and deal it into two piles. Pick up one of the piles and perform a Down & Under Deal and then take the last remaining card and insert it down into the other packet at the number you remembered earlier. Take that packet and place it behind your back. Spell your name - one card at a time - and place the new top card reversed in the centre of the packet. Your mother is a whore."

Lol, where does this come from? A book?

I do agree I find a lot of Colombini material to be quite boring...

a good thing when you want to go to bed

I understand that many Aldo's card or mentalism effects lies on this kind of steps / patter, still he got some nice card effects though over the years.
